Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Robin Hood...

Violence with bows and arrows, knives, axes and swords are the primary issue with this film. Battle scenes depict men being shot down with hundreds of arrows. Close-ups show men being drenched with hot liquid, cut down with swords, and hit with knives and axes. Some of these scenes also depict blood, especially one battle on a beach where the ocean begins to take on a red hue. Two other sequences depict an impaling and a decapitation, but neither is shown. A scene with a married man in bed with another woman (he claims his wife is unable to bear a child) includes some activity, along with back and shoulder nudity. A group of men ogle women in a tavern and sexual relations are implied when we see the men and women appear together the next morning. A woman is held captive and about to be raped, but as she lifts her dress she kicks her attacker and gets away. Language is limited to one profanity and one term of Christian deity. A friar brews an alcoholic beverage that many people drink to the point of intoxication.

I really enjoyed this movie. It’s very violent, but the violence is characteristic of the time period, and not gratuitous. I will allow my teenagers to watch it. Most of the sexual content is brief and difficult to follow. There is a scene in the beginning with Prince John in bed with a lover, but that scene is easily skipped on DVD.

I appreciate this depiction of the Robin Hood story, as it incorporates more of the historical facts, and lends a much different perspective than any other version I have seen. The love between Marion and Robin develops slowly, and their romantic behavior is restrained and relatively private.

Movies like this increase my appreciation for the safety and civilization we enjoy. It was quite moving and uplifting. It’s a great date movie for adult couples.
